Arrive, park, and enjoy historic York and our brand new home and furnishings
About Alistair Budd
My wife and I love York. We have visited many many times over the years. We love the whole atmosphere of a safe city with great nights out alongside the fabulous history and culture. An opportunity to buy a property arose in 2016. We looked around at 9am and had an offer accepted by 9.15 am, we knew the house was perfect for our needs. and had no hesitations in purchasing, "Alba House". The style and finish of the house is excellent. But primarily the location is great. We can park the car and not use it again all week!! Our children love the property and so do we. I am sure you will also. Alistair and Josephine

Lovely Home in a perfect location.
I highly recommend the house , the location is ideal. A 10min stroll into the city.
Weekend in York with family
The property was ideal for our short stay. Clean and comfortable accommodation and not too far from the centre of York.
Birthday Family Weekend away
We thought that the house was very comfortable. Lots of spacious rooms, superb for 3 families to share. House was warm even when heating was off. Very good location to town which was a 10 minute walk. Throughly enjoyed our weekend in York and the house contributed to that in a huge way. Would look to stay at your property again if we were to stay in York in the future. Thank you, Mark Gannon
Lovely house. 10-15 minutes walk into York. 7 of us stayed for the weekend.
I would definitely stay again. Couple of small points- shower head wouldn't stay up and the downstairs toilet seat didn't seem to fit properly. Other than these 2 minor things, it was perfect.
Nice house in a great location. Easy walking into York (10mins flat walking) and all the attractions. Loads to do and see in York and the surrounding area. Castle Museum and Castle Howard worth a visit.
The house was clean and tidy when we arrived and suited our needs for the week.
Comfy beds and beautiful bedding and towels
The house does need some TLC though due to wear and tear.
None of the bedroom doors shut completely.
Shower door doesn’t close completely and the shower head only stays up facing one way with the knob to turn it on and off a mission with wet hands.
Loo seats need attention.
Shame that previous comments about having a shower curtain in the main bathroom not taken up as it was a pain not having one.
However the + outweigh the -
so please don’t be put off booking this property
Perfect location for visiting York
Lovely clean and well equipped house perfect for a get together of friends. Nice and close to the centre of York allowing us to come & go as we wished. Would definitely recommend and will book again when we return.
